More Finished UFO’s

Okay, I’m late posting again but it is June, busy weather as I’m sure you know. Got the garden Mostly in, but it keeps going from cold and wet to blazing hot, not good for gardens or people! Today is over cast but not raining. Yet. Forecast is for clearing and moderate temps. I’ll believe it when I see it…

…Like you do with my promised posting!  Ah well. I frogged the supposed shrug as it was a garment no one could wear. Now it’s just a plain tunic, comfortable but not very flattering for me. There is no shaping, I could not find a belt but as I have no waist, I’m not sure that would matter. I thought of letting Madelyn model it but it’s way too big for her.

But here it is laid out flat. The neckline was a picot, bind off. The sleeves an applied I-Cord.  The hem also Picot bind off. I picked up the stitches, knit around and then worked the BO.

 

12″ Alpaca squares woven in three colors

Picked up stitches, worked 3 rows of stockinet- knit side inside so it would curl to the right side and then the Picot Bind off.

Applied I-cord for the sleeve.

Picked up hem stitches then knit in the round one round and bound off with the picot stitch. I didn’t want this one to curl.

And I found an anonymous old lady to model it. I think I need some sleeves under but this yarn does not sit well over clothing. It sticks and refuses to drape as it should. Works like your old sunday school flannel board! lol But this yarn is soooo comfy! Even tho it isn’t really a flattering garment I might wear it a lot just because it feels so good! I am at least happy that I finally found a use for all those squares and that lovely yarn.  Now I just have a vast selection of demo squares to make into something. And as we are coming up in fair season again I think I should plan a bit better with yarn choice so that I have a better chance of actually using the squares I weave while showing folk how it’;s done.

It was suggested  I do a WAL for making pants. I wasn’t thrilled with the idea but I saw a pair this morning somewhere that I think just might work this way. I wonder if I could possibly find that photo again… What’s chances? lol

  1. Terrel says “It looks like a rose in the garden to me!” And he always tells the truth. It does look very comfy, except for the neck. Looks like it might be a strangler. I like rounded or V-necks in front. Love the yarn.

  2. I agree with Terrel, and I agree with Elsie! I think it looks comfy, and while this is not everybody’s taste, the boxy cut is extremely popular right now.

    Yay! We got you on the pants WAL!!! … waiting … waiting …
